    Squire has left the building....last seen heading north on I-65 (just south of Bowling Green Ky), driving a stolen 18 wheeler, with emergency flashers on!

    Barton security has called in all reinforcements....the BG Parkway and I-64 between Louisville and Frankfort are closed until further notice!

    That sucks..just as we got the 6 year 86 proof reliably here in Texas. 4 years (or less) ain't going to cut it..

    So should we blame the Internet?? Would this have happened if Sourmashmanifesto and WhiskyAdvocate blogs had not given such high praise????

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    We go through this every time an age statement is removed. If it has the characteristics you like, who cares about its age. If it doesn't, don't buy it. There are new bourbons entering the market. I recall the major whining that greeted the elimination of the age statement on Weller Antique. In my opinion, the bottle of NAS Weller Antique t,hat I purchased was superior to the age stated. Of course, the distillery can use younger bourbon; however, until the characteristics are inferior, I will continue to buy it.

    Re: VOB BiB dropped age statement

    In the case of VOB BIB, I am not certain how much difference it will make as long as the taste is the same. However, the perception is that you are paying the same, or possibly more, and getting less. Whiskey production is no different than any other industry in this trend, except the explosive demand is creating shortages over a relatively short period of time. Short of removing the age statement, they would probably be looking at allocating the product. The trend of removing age statements will continue until the next down cycle.
